After a super successful festival run, Filmoption International and EMA Films bring the much- anticipated film, Radius, to theatres across Canada beginning Friday December 1.
The mesmerizing science fiction thriller was written and directed by Caroline Labréche and Steeve Léonard, who brought us the cult favorite Turbo Kid.
The film stars Diego Klattenhoff (The Blacklist, Homeland) and Charlotte Sullivan (Chicago Fire, Rookie Blue).
Liam (Diego Klattenhoff) wakes from a car crash at the bottom of a ditch with no memory of who he is. As he makes his way into town, he discovers that anyone who comes within a 50-foot radius of him dies instantly. Out of options, he tries to live in seclusion to protect others, until one day, his murderous power seems to subside… with the arrival of a woman (Charlotte Sullivan) who says she was in the crash with him. She too is suffering from amnesia and looking for answers. Together they embark on a journey to uncover who they really are…
Radius was co-produced by Anne-Marie Gélinas and Benoit Beaulieu for EMAfilms and Jean Du Toit by Peripatetic Pictures while RKSS (Turbo Kid), Anouk Whissell, Yoann-Karl Whissell and François Simard in collaboration with Stéphanie Trépanier served as executive producers. The direction of the photography was carried out by Simon Villeneuve, the visual design by Maryam Decter, Steeve Léonard also served as editor and the music was by Benoît Charest.
Radius is produced with the participation of Telefilm Canada, the Manitoba Tax Credit, the Cinema and Television Tax Credit – Gestion SODEC, the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit, Manitoba Music and Film, and developed with the participation of SUPER CHANNEL. It is distributed by Filmoption International and is released in theatres on December 1.
